Hi. I'm wondering if anyone has experience with d5100, and can help me figure out if the camera/ lens, needs repair, or if it's just time for me to upgrade. I currently shoot mainly children in studio, and pretty much stick to iso 100, f7-f11 at 160'th second. My lens is the 18-105mm zoom lens. Lately I've been noticing more and more of my images that look slightly noisy and sometimes not tack sharp. I do crop them in, and that's when I notice it more. Also noticed that I don't have this...

As a step-up from an amateur photographer, I've been looking to upgrade from the standard kit lens of 18-55mm. I'm looking at the Nikon 18-140mm lens for quite some time now and was wondering if that lens is worth the money. I'm into anything ranging from landscape photography to portrait so I see that this particular lens is suitable for either category. Any help is appreciated.

I am currently looking into buying a full frame camera and i need some help deciding between the Nikon D750 and the Sony A7. Currently i am using a nikon D5100 with a 35mm F/1.8, kit lens and the 50-200mm and mainly i use this camera for portraits and i tend to shoot in low light conditions quite often which made me consider getting the D750 for the longest time, but recently i've been familiarizing myself with the a7 at work and they are allowing me to buy a new a7 with kit lens for about...

Hello, I could use some advice. I'm using a D5100 for interval timer shooting at night (the Perseids asteroids.) I've set all on M (Manual,) the shutter is at 30 seconds. The timer interval is at 32 seconds, (to allow 2 secs. for the camera to re-set itself) and the Long Exposure Noise Reduction to OFF. Yet, I am getting what appear to be 30 second exposures, with another 30 seconds (gap) and then the next 30 second exposure. This is evident on distant airplane light trails: a 30 second...

Hi guys - I am completely new to photography but taking a class this semester. Our professor asked for the following: 35mm digital camera: complete manual controls, ability to shoot raw files 24mm or 28mm wide angle lens: for a full frame camera (use the entire 24mm x 36mm sensor); if you have a zoom lens it should have 24mm or 28mm at its widest focal length. If it has a sensor crop factor, your wide angle must have the equivalent coverage of a 24mm. For example, cameras with a 1.6x sensor...

If I understand it correctly, to "exposure bracket" by adjusting ISO over 3 photos, I should set the controls on "M" (Manual) set the Shutter Speed and Aperture at the desired values, and then select "Auto ISO". (And of course pre-select the "bracketing" option.) Would this work? and/or is there a "better way?" Thank you --RUcrAZ p.s. same question on the D5100.

I have a Nikon D610 and my wife has a D5100.  I can't afford to spend $900 on a macro lens, but we are wanting a macro that will work with both our cameras (so we can share use of it).  Her D5100 doesn't have the drive motor for AF so it has to be a G series lens or one with a internal AF drive motor.  She can't use a manual focus lens. We'd like something in the 90mm to 105mm range so we don't have to be right up against our subject.  Would like to take pics of butterflies, dragonflies, etc...

Hello world! I've got a really big problem. I'm in a project to transfer floor plans from physical form to digital form via AutoCAD. I'm shooting the floor plans at the National Archives so I can use only the DSLR+a tripod (without flash ofc). My question is since I can't scan them and need to shoot them with my DSLR and kit lens how can I shoot them so there will not be any distortion/perspective whatsoever. I mean none! 1:1 so I can take the distances from the photo and put them in...

Hi all, i have a D5100, and I'm planning a safari in Etosha (Namibia) in september: would the Tamron 70-300 VC (or the Nikon 70-300 VR) worth the extra money and wight compared to the kit lens 55-200 VR? I'm currently quite happy of the 55-200, light, decent autofocus, good sharpness, it's relatively slow, but I used it only in daylight on the alps, the only really bad thing is the manual focus ring. in your experience passing from equivalent 300mm to 450mm is it really worth? is the quality...

Hi All, I am hoping for a little help regarding an old Vivitar 19mm lens that I have. The lens has the usual aperture lever which is spring loaded and happily slides open the aperture on pushing, but it also has a second lever that I am unsure as to what it is for. See pictures below: Aperture circled in blue / other unknown circled in red Again, aperture circled blue, unknown circled red It looks like this unknown lever should move (it has a gap that would indicate so), but it is stuck...
